It would be hard to believe that there is a better restaurant in all of the Outer Banks. We had a lovely Sunday evening dinner in this charming old house with impeccable service, a well balanced wine list and fabulous food. Although small, you can't help but love the welcoming atmosphere of this place. Our waiter took an immediate personal interest in us from the moment we were seated to the fabulous desert. The special that night was a shrimp and grilled tuna combination over cheese grits with red eye gravy. Sounds like pretty down-home southern cuisine but the elegant presentation took it to a new level and the flavors were fabulous and definitely gourmet.. My husband was looking for beef after a weekend of seafood and proclaimed his steak perfect! Obviously adhering to the "fresh and local" rule this place is not to be missed. Be sure to make a reservation because even on a Sunday night every table was taken. although this was our first trip to OBX it will not be our last and the Colington Cafe will be on our list every time we come.
